Graduate programs in Engineering Management recruit students who had undergraduate education in a variety of disciplines such as civil, mechanical, electrical and architectural engineering and other science disciplines. But the future engineering managers have to know how to define specific work systems for their use, which are essentially combination of men, machines and information (the method) to produce work. In particular they should be competent in method study and work measurement to carry out or supervise method planning and work estimation. The Master of Engineering Management at X university enrols graduates from any scientific and engineering disciplines. The traditional industrial engineering areas such as method study, time measurement, line balancing and plant layout formed part of the topics in the syllabus and predetermined motion time systems (PMTS) was taught in this part. The students found the theoretical part too dry. In order to enthuse the students a standard three-pin plug assembling was carried out in the class. This energised the students and they brought two projects from the local area. Their analysis using MOST and proper design of the workstation revealed savings of more than 40% of labor. The paper will describe both these projects and the assembling of the three pin plug. It will also discuss the lessons learned in the process and the future directions.
